With both Europa League and Premier League action returning to Old Trafford, Manchester United have a hectic week in store.

We bet a lot of Reds enjoyed Sunday’s 3-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur in London. Now, attention turns to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side’s second leg in the Europa League quarter-final against Granada before the week comes to an end with an Old Trafford visit from Burnley in the Premier League.

In addition, Casey Stoney’s team enter the Women’s FA Cup this weekend and both our Under-18s and Under-23s are also in action this week.

Here’s how seven exciting days at United shapes up…

MONDAY

We start the week by looking back at a tremendous performance at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. Keep your eye out for a match quiz, videos and features on the game coming your way on ManUtd.com and in our Official App.

A new episode of UTD Podcast will be released at 17:00 BST. This week, it’s legendary striker Mark Hughes joining Helen Evans, Sam Homewood and ex-Red David May in the studio. The podcast will be available on all major streaming platforms. 

As Ramadan starts, the family of Manchester United wishes everyone a month full of happiness and good deeds.

We would like to wish defender Eric Bailly a happy 27th birthday.

TUESDAY

Ole’s men will put in the hard work at Aon Training Complex ahead of our Europa League quarter-final second leg versus Granada as the focus shifts to the bid for silverware in a competition we won in 2017. We hold a 2-0 lead from the first leg but will be missing some key players due to suspension.

The latest issue of Inside United is released, featuring a big interview with right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

WEDNESDAY

The boss will take on questions from the media in his pre-match press conference. You can follow the press conference on MUTV and read stories on ManUtd.com and in our Official App afterwards. We will also discover the team news from the Granada camp when coach Diego Martinez also provides updates on his squad.

On this day in 1999, United progressed to the FA Cup final after beating Arsenal in an iconic semi-final replay at Villa Park, the last one ever, thanks to a penalty save from Peter Schmeichel and a truly magical Ryan Giggs extra-time winner.

THURSDAY

The Reds welcome Granada for the first time with kick-off at the Theatre of Dreams taking place at 20:00 BST. United have a two-goal advantage from the first meeting in Spain after strikes from Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes sealed a 2-0 win.

The match is being shown live on BT Sport in the UK but you can also tune into MUTV’s coverage with the Match Day Live programme starting at 18:55 BST.

It’s 12 years since Cristiano Ronaldo scored our Goal of the Season with a 40-yard rocket against Porto in the Champions League.

FRIDAY

We will look back on the evening’s action and provide the latest news from Ole’s press conference ahead of this weekend’s meeting with Sean Dyche’s Burnley in the Premier League.

Our Under-23s take on our cross-town rivals Manchester City in Premier League 2. Kick-off in the away game at City’s Academy Stadium is at 19:00 BST and you can watch this Manchester derby live on MUTV from 18:45 BST.

SATURDAY

Neil Ryan’s Under-18s make the journey to face Newcastle, hoping to consolidate top spot in the division. The match will kick off at 12.30pm at Newcastle United Academy.

We would also like to send our birthday wishes to Kirsty Hanson, who turns 23 on Saturday. Happy birthday, Kirsty!

Two years ago today, United Women celebrated promotion to the Women’s Super League and, on this day in 2010, Paul Scholes headed in a famous last-minute winner against Manchester City at the home of our neighbours.

SUNDAY

United are back at Old Trafford for our battle with Burnley in the Premier League. The Reds won 1-0 in the reverse fixture at Turf Moor in January thanks to a magnificent Paul Pogba volley in the second half. Kick-off at the Theatre of Dreams is at 16:00 BST and you can follow the action in our Match Day Live programme on MUTV, starting at 14:55 BST. Alternatively, you can keep up to date in our Official App and on ManUtd.com.

United Women enter the Women’s FA Cup for our fourth-round tie, coincidentally against Burnley Women at the Barnfield Training Centre. Kick-off in Lancashire is at 14:00 BST.

We will also wish Donny van de Beek a very happy birthday. The Dutch midfielder turns 24 and, hopefully, our no. 34 can celebrate with three points against the Clarets.
